Rather enjoyable. Tries to be more funny than spooky.

Silly but fun
Almost afraid to look at this after previous review, but VL is beautiful as ever and perfectly at ease in this silly comic LIGHTS OUT. No resemblance to the great radio series but funny script and good acting make it worth a look. Notice the recording witch character, whose reading of an historic witch bio is the best part next to VL herself.
I was both surprised and saddened by the fact Veronica Lake is in this episode. It is hard to believe that this was only 8 years after her appearance in "Sullivan's Travels" and "I Married a Witch". She suffered from horrible mental illness and had a terrible mother who contributed to both her mental downward spiral and her alcholism.
She is one of those folks who was taken far too soon, she died at the relatively young age of 50 from hepatitis. While she was in the hospital, she did not have any visitors or calls, but the staff found out who she was and showered her with attention and made her last days a little better.
